It may surprise you to know I have some sympathy with Nic. I don’t agree with the BHA’s position on laying, as I have explained before; and I may believe that he’s leading racing and SROC as if he understands nothing about either as far as the betting world is concerned; but being accosted in public by Harry would be no fun.

    I don’t think Findlay rushing the fella is the right way to go though.
